The Limnic Eruption of Lake Nyos of August, 1986

Today’s podcast touches on a more obscure natural phenomenon that occurred in Cameroon back in 1986.  The limnic eruption of Lake Nyos, when submerged carbon dioxide gas was suddenly forced to the surface, is something that doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does, the results are deadly.

    Hi, I know this is like 5 years old, but for some reason the embedded player is playing the Kansas City episode. The download link is fine though.
